POOR ECONOMY: Singer Ronald Mayinja

As music icon Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine prepares to swear-in tomorrow, colleague Ronald Mayinja has revealed he could be the next singer to join Parliament.

According to Mayinja, music is now less paying for the singers, something he blames the current economic situation that has seen several companies, which have been supporting and endorsing them, close.

“People are suffering. My clients are no longer attending my shows. I don’t think it fitting for me to go and continue dancing (singing)… It’s better to go and talk about those issues that are making people suffer,” he said in an interview with NTV.

Mayinja, popularly known for conscious music advocating for proper welfare of all Ugandans said that currently, it is very hard for them (musicians) to pass over their messages to the masses.

“The fact that we (musicians) don’t own radio stations, when you sing anything that does not appeal to the ears of our leaders, they just switch off those radio stations playing such songs,” he added.

Mayinja is known for hits like; Africa, Nguzi and Tuli Kubunkenke. He is also a close friend to the just elected Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
